Because practical experience in applying text-book knowledge to real-life situations is a key element in finding the right position after graduation, the LL.M. in European and International Tax Law was specifically designed to ensure that students undertake an optional internship with one of the field’s numerous local stakeholders.
Each student is responsible for arranging an internship that meets the programme’s requirements in terms of length, subject matter, and evaluation. However, students are not left alone to find an appropriate position. Not only will they benefit from the presence of professionals teaching in the programme, but they will also find that the University has already entered into framework agreements with many of Luxembourg’s leading law firms and companies, through which such entities have agreed to offer internships to the programme’s students and which help structure the content of the internship.
Internships typically start in early June and must continue for a minimum of eight consecutive weeks. Beyond that, the internship’s supervisor and the student may certainly agree to extend the relationship.
The internship is part of the module 6 “the tax practice case study”. The Student must submit an internship report in the form of a problem description of a practical case and its solution.
